She is just like me! UGH! I have NO idea how we will all survive.
I round the corner to the dining room and get a flashback of me coloring under all the furniture when I was little. (It is still there at Dad's house!) I don't even know how to handle this. My mom tried the bucket approach, meaning she skipped the spanking and gave me a bucket of soapy water and made me scrub the marks off the wall. The next day, I had a bucket of water out and a new mural on the wall, ready to do it again. Needless to say, the spanking wasn't skipped that day.
I continued to color on things, even when I knew better. Right on up until I started getting paid for it. I think I need to buy stock in magic eraser.
PS. The David she is referring to is from the David Shannon book, No David! and David gets in Trouble. Her favorites.
